I went thru the Wax Beans, and wow... those plants aren't hardly
2 feet tall, and look at what I got! ha!
The other day, the Early Girl tomato plant was leaning... it had
gotten too big for the small tomato cage and it flopped over.
So, I set it back up and put another tomato cage behind it to hold
The next day, it had flopped in a different direction. So I
set up another tomato cage to hold it up in that way.
Today I found a big branch, heavy with tomatoes, dragging on
the ground. This one was hard to fix, because I had to stick
the branch inside the tomato cage, while at the same time trying
to push the legs of the cage into the ground at the proper angle.
I scratched up the heavy branch a good bit, but at least I
didn't break it! And now this monstrous plant is being
held up with four tomato cages. It's got about a zillion tomatoes
growing on it but they are all still green, green, green!
They will probably all ripen at the exact same time. sighs!
It's a problem because I don't do any preservation... we don't
have any freezer space, and I'm not interested in canning
since we don't have air conditioning! Sighs!
Looks like there might be plenty of Tomatillos as well, from
all the volunteers in the Second Cucumber Empire!
Tofu patch is still growing and being happy...
And there's a volunteer Amaranth growing at the edge.
I never gather the seeds from the Amaranths that pop up... the
volunteers are usually pretty small, and the seeds will be
eaten by the birds and other wildlife!
Oh, nice! I've got some Heal-All in my wild area!
The garden plot does have one, perfectly normal, big and tall,
volunteer sunflower that's blooming! I had to hold the camera
over my head to get this photo!
That's my favorite kind of sunflower... with the rusty red colour
on the petals.
Heading home... here's Henrietta.
this is Not-Henrietta!)
And here's a new fellow. He's being loud,
mooing at the
world. I'm kinda surprised that Henrietta doesn't go downstream
and gobble him up! Maybe he's too big? Maybe she doesn't like
the taste of Bull Frogs?
He's so green and spotted! Faiz is a boring brown compared
to this one! Here's a photo to compare...
And Later Today...
So! I went to upload the blog posts I had typed, and something
wasn't right. The FTP program acted like it was working, but
the new posts didn't show up.
My website host had upgraded the server, and switched it
over last night. Great. That's just great.
I'm so glad good things are happening!
And so I *Patiently* and *Carefully*
re-read the informational email. No help. I
clicked a couple things and went to the
wiki for an answer to my little problem.
The wiki didn't have my answers either.
But I kept digging thru the dashboard, and ...
huh. For some reason, the username for my ftp had defaulted to
an old, random login on the new server.
I had created that username for someone else and so the permissions
were extremely limited. Not to mention I made it about a million
years ago, internet time!
I try to switch it over to my actual login which has all the
permissions. but of course the changes don't go thru right away.
I want them to go thru Right NOW!
So I keep fiddling with it, doing the same thing
five or six times over, because the changes don't stick and all
I want is for it to work... please just work, already!!
Yeah. I just needed to give it like 15 minutes. and then it
